[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Red-tailed Hawk perches on this very same tree very often. I can see him from my apartment window. There is also a female Merlin that perches on this very same tree, although at the very top. She doesn't stay as long as the hawk, but it looks like it is a good vantage point for these raptors.

The Tamron lens renders a lot of CA in images such as this one. I hence preferred to render the sky and branches B/W to partly hide the CA and also to hide the unpleasant blue colour of the sky. I think it looks better this way.
